Policy Groups

Bristol Labour is updating its policies for the life and economy of the City of Bristol.

We want as wide a consutation as possible that involves many views within the party from as many areas of the city as possible.

The effect of the coalition cuts have hurt the most vulnerable in our city. Where should our limited resourses go? What should be fought for the most?
